The Story of the Noughties

Series 1 - 1. Growing Young

About this programme

1/3. The first of three documentary films exploring life in the opening decade of the 21st century, revealing the hidden connections that are shaping the future in previously unprecedented ways. This edition examines how the Noughties have been characterised by a nationwide obsession with recapturing youth, but at the expense of genuine youngsters, who have often been demonised as `hoodies' and trouble-makers. With contributions by Andrew Marr, Tanya Byron and Will Self.
